What is this?
La Capitaine is an icon pack, designed to integrate with most desktop environments. The set of icons takes inspiration from the latest iterations of macOS and Google's Material Design through the use of visually pleasing gradients, shadowing, and simple icon geometry.

Every image in this theme is a scalable vector graphic so it will look great at any size, on any screen. In my spare time, I work on adding new icons, updating old ones, and making this theme more complete. Since this theme is updated often, you should clone this git repository and pull regularly to make sure you're always up-to-date:

cd ~/.icons
git clone https://github.com/keeferrourke/la-capitaine-icon-theme.git

Icon Requests
If there's an icon that's missing in this project, feel free to contact me or open an issue on my Github :)

La Capitaine comes with a configuration script which attempts to determine your distribution and desktop environment. Using this information, La Capitaine updates several system icons and icons used for mime-types.

For best integration with your distro/desktop environment, please run `./configure` and follow the prompts.

Well deserved! You know, I'm not trying to troll you, but I found a missing icon :P

It's for the "Login Window" setting in the settings manager in Linux Mint.

What is the correct name of the theme to enter in the Inherits field of index.theme of another theme? La Capitaine, la-capitaine, la-capitaine-0.5.0 etc don't work.




1 year ago

if you have it saved under the folder "~/.themes/la-capitaine-icon-theme" for instance, the inheritance name should be "la-capitaine-icon-theme" afaik.

La capitaine looks like french to me, but after I looked it up in dictionary I found capitaine be a masculine noun, so why does it have an article "la"? And, great icons of course.




1 year ago

Haha thanks! It looks like you're correct. My French high school teacher would probably kill me for making this mistake. I had the intention of making "le capitaine" feminine, but it seems like the 'le' article should still be used. Good catch lol. I may need to pick up a book on French grammar, since my skills have clearly slipped. I think it's probably too late to change the name, so consider it a quirk of the product :P



1 year ago

French is my first language so I might help you with that one.

Traditionally, capitaine is masculine only (for historical reasons, main one being the absence of female captains for the most part of the language's existence). But, as we know, it is now possible to find women at positions were they would be qualified as "capitaines". Therefore came the need to create a feminine form. In French, it is generally done by simply adding an 'e' at the end of the word (for example, "avocat" (lawyer) becomes "avocate" when speaking of a woman) with the usual exceptions you find in French (and the exceptions of the exceptions). As "capitaine" already ends with an 'e', the word don't change (that 'e' is silent anyway (but changes the pronunciation of the end of the word in some cases)). So "la capitaine" is totally correct if applied to a woman. You can find an example on wiktionary (french one) under the 4th definition: "La capitaine de l'équipe de volley féminin."

As such, it is not masculine or feminine but both and, out of context, "le capitaine" or "la capitaine" are both correct.

Aha! Wonderful :) I am glad this is the case. I guess I wasn't wrong after all :) Merci beaucoup mehari!



1 year ago

Well, I was actually asking you because I thought you were a native French speaker. I was learning French but later switched to German because French pronunciation was too hard for me. But I'll pick it up again in future. Thank you for setting up a Fedora repository so it just updates with the rest packages.




1 year ago

No worries. I'm Canadian, so I took French through most of my schooling, but incidentally also switched gears to German in first year of uni. I'm trying to stay on top of both languages, but it's hard! lol. Also, I'm glad the Fedora repo is useful --- but don't thank me for it :) That repository was set up by @LaurentTreguier on Github ^_^

v0.6.1-20190217 2 months ago
